Hey, guys. Been printing TST non-stop for a few weeks now! I'm really struggling with painting the dungeon walls and columns. I watched the Beginner's Guide to Drybrushing video on the Bravo Gaming channel many times, but I just can't seem to get the look of TST. I've tried using a very dark gray, dark gray, medium gray, and very light gray (in that order) over black primer. I've tried variations on these, tried leaving out the darkest gray, tried washes, but my stuff looks too black & white (high contrast between the darker colors and the lighter). Leaving out the darkest shade helps with this, but I can't get what I see in your pics (for example, the image of the dungeon walls in the How-To Paint Indoor Hexes post). If you're working on this How-To, I'll just remain patient...

Here are the 4 grays I’ve been using, along with 2 other shades I’ve experimented with as well.
As an added thought, if you posted a picture or two of the paint colors you are using, and the end result you are achieving we might be able to provide some additional pointers. The next painting video to be released will be the "Outdoor Hexes" tutorial, but the Dungeon walls will follow that video shortly thereafter.
Hi there! Hmmm that’s an interesting one. There will indeed be an official TST ‘How to Paint’ episode upcoming for walls, but in the meantime, the only thing I can think of that might be causing your problem with mimicking our paint scheme is to do with how much paint is on your brush. If you‘re a bit heavy with the paint, it can end up ‘not looking right’ as the colours all tend to meld into splotches rather than a gradual, highlighted aged stone-looking palette. I’d just make double sure you really get most of the paint off your brush before applying, especially on the final 3 colours. One way or another, I’m sure we‘ll get your walls looking great.
